UMAF KARATE PROGRAM OVERVIEW
“The Ultimate aim of karate lies not in victory nor defeat, but in the perfection of the character and its participants”
- Gichin Funakoshi, founder of Shotokan Karate
At Lynbrook’s Ultimate Martial Arts and Fitness we study the Shotokan style of karate. Our students are taught the 3 technical elements-- kihon (basics), kata (forms), and kumite (sparring), which are balanced with lessons of respect and character development (foundations of Shotokan philosophy).
Students can join our program from the age of 3, and classes are designed to effectively teach each student according to age and skill level.
